A Stunning, Happy Night!

"W' and I drove down to Dothan, Alabama (my home town) for the "wedding of the year"!
My best friend from jr. high and high school's daughter was getting married to her childhood sweetheart and I just couldn't have been happier for both of them.
If you've read a while you know that her mom died about 4 years ago and while Becky was not there you could feel her presence all around the entire night.
It was a stunningly beautiful night! One that I'll never forget!

Kendall and Watson

 Jessica (Kendall's step sister) and her sweet hubs!
okay, a little funny here!......
 this is Tommy Tolleson and his soon to be bride

 I know they were wondering why I was clickin away at them!!!
 I thought it was Abby (Kendall's sister) and her husband Jeremiah
 Becky's brother Greg and his adorable gbaby!
 the two "Kendalls"!!!
 some of our best friends Tim and Kathy Gannon
 Ken and Konie (aren't they gorgeous!)

I love all of them so much and it was such a joyous occasion!
Have a wonderful Sunday y'all!

Ugly Dresses!

I woke up really, really early this morning.....I mean like 3:30.
that means that my work out will be really hard this a.m. and I'm going to be tired all day.
Dang I hate getting old!
(and I'm getting closer to being one year older btw)
Anyway, I really didn't have anything to blog about so I decided to look at dresses on the Internet.
I started at Niemans.
Seriously? What are the designers thinking this year.
OMG talk about dowdy.
I'm giving the big time designers a big time thumbs down!
(except my friend Wes Gordon)
who, btw is in the window at Bergdorfs NYC right now!
Go Wes!  We are SO proud of you!!!!
Anyway, thought I'd show you a few of the hideous dresses I found this morning.
 Marilyn Monroe would love a gust of wind in this dress....
 talk about matronly
 I mean seriously? Could your butt look any bigger in this?
 okee dokey
I think this dress was like 1,000.00.  I think I saw one just like it at Good Will.
Okay, enough of being mean.
I did find some really cute dresses along with the ugly ones!
So on to (what I think) are cute!
 this is so me.

 and so is this.

 I absolutely adore this dress (hint hint)

Couldn't find the exact dress I'm wearing for the "Wedding of the Year" today but it's a little like this!
Have a wonderful day y'all!

A Wonderful Day....and Night!!!

So I got to Atlanta yesterday morning to play some awesome tennis!  It was SO much fun and again got to see friends I haven't seen in a while!  (Barb, you played amazing btw).
I hydrated like crazy and had no problems at all with the heat thank goodness.
Then, I got in the car and the phone rings.
It's "W".
He say's be at the St. Regis at 3:30 you've got a massage and facial scheduled.
How fun is that?
And by the way, if you ever get a massage at the St. Regis in Atlanta asked for Theo.
Really the best massage I've EVER had.
Then we stayed there for the night with dinner at Chops. Yummy.
Right now I'm lying in bed watching TV waiting for room service.
Itching for my coffee.
I need it NOW!!!
okay, I'm back!  Gobbled up every bite!
So when I got to the room yesterday, this was awaiting me.

 okay, "W" and I have this debate.  I can't STAND tan lines. Like the ones I'm showing in this pic.
HE said men love them! What's up with that?  Agree or Disagree?
Anyway, off to Chops!
Here's to another 31 years!!! Thank you honey!  It was a wonderful night!
Have a great day y'all!

Happy Anniversary Baby.....

Got chew on my Mi-hind!!!
Today I married the most wonderful husband, father, and person in the whole world.
31 years ago.
That's a really long time.
We met when I was a college cheerleader.  I was cheering at a basketball game and we were running out on the court.  For some reason he was downstairs where we ran out and I almost knocked him over!
(I don't remember doing that)
but I believe him.
Then up in the stands he said he was watching me the whole night and told his friends he was going to marry me.  Well he did! And I'm happy he did!
31 years later we are still happily going strong.
I admire him more than anyone I know.
He is brilliant, caring, and loving.
He loves his kids and grand kids more than life itself.
I love his passion for life and work and when I'm down he sustains me.
He loves that I paint and is so supportive.  I think I've only painted a couple of things that he says "ya know?  that just doesn't look like something you painted" meaning "I don't like it"
he never tells me that he doesn't like what I cook.
I can get a little crazy sometimes! and he just puts up with it....
he LOVES surprises!
So what IS the key to a good marriage?
I would have to say
1) Unconditional love
2) Friendship
3) Support
4) Communication
5) Always tell each other that you love each other EVERY day
not necessarily in that order.
So here's to the love of my life!
Happy Anniversary honey!
I love you!
have a great day y'all!

Babies and Family Fun

Part One.
I have gotten to spend a little bit of quality time with my sweet lil Baby Cakes this visit!  She is growing up right before my eyes and I've been missing her like crazy!
So, of course out came the camera!

 G-Man (who is now nicknames Bean....don't ask) got some baby time too!

 Rapunzel and Lil B have discovered my IPad.  Do I dare take it home with me?
 On to the family gathering.  I don't think I have ever had so much fun!  We are fastly introducing Houston into the Boggs' part of the family with a lot of "oversharing" and many funny and embarrassing stories.  Which was exactly what we did last night.  I think the only one left out of the stories was Callen!
 Still telling stories
 and more....
 and more....
 and more....
 wait! W had one!

 Houston just looked on and laughed!

 Amy and Gregory
 Amy's garden is growing by leaps and bounds!  This was one of the watermelons straight from her garden!!! yummy!
 Eric and Jordan
 Callen and Houston
and again!
We had som much fun last night.  It truly was one of the most fun times I've spent with my kids in a long time!
Today? Another body tech class and headin home.
See ya chicks!
